Last week I posted the following on Instagram and Facebook: FORTY WHAAATT???!! I turned 41 and 1/2 on July 11 this week so I’m officially in my forties. If you haven’t turned 40 yet it can be a scary number. Even 30 can be scary if you haven’t yet reached that milestone. Physically I don’t feel any different today than I did on my 30th birthday. In fact I feel physically stronger… Read More

This is a very good question and often times lifters need guidance as to how… Read More

Last Sunday, I was sitting out by the shared pool at our gated community reading a book. A man was playing catch with a football with his grandson in the pool. Engrossed in my book as I enjoyed the heat of the sun, the group chatter and splashing were merely background noise. Then all of a sudden I heard the man say to his grandson, loud and clear, “You throw like a… Read More

Any good strength coach knows and will tell you that training single leg movements is essential. Throughout our day-to-day, whether it be walking to work, running to catch a bus or a train, or in sport, like soccer, football, baseball, hockey, dance, or martial arts, as humans we are constantly balancing our bodyweight and shifting it between two legs. This is one of the reasons why I love the single leg deadlift… Read More

After I finished my weight cut with the Renaissance Periodization cutting template on May 14, 2016 (read more in my post Lessons Learned From Cutting Weight) I had some people ask me what will I do next?

Yes, I have been following a maintenance phase and here are some updates: By “maintenance” that means that… Read More
